American Pie returning to theaters?

 

Following the franchise’s third outing in 2003, American Wedding aka American Pie: The Wedding, Universal Pictures produced three straight-to-DVD sequels featuring none of the original cast apart from Eugene Levy (Jim’s Dad) and Chris Owen’s Sherman (in the first one) and focusing on members of Stifler’s family (the character played by Seann William Scott).

The success of these video outings has prompted Universal to think of a new theatrical installment, featuring the original cast of course. No one’s been signed on to the as yet untitled flick, but since none of the cast have really it hit big (with the possible exception of Scott), I don’t really see anyone turning down the flick. Are you interested in a new American Pie flick with the original cast?

Movie Of The Day: The Rundown/Welcome To The Jungle (2003)

The Rundown, known internationally as Welcome To The Jungle, was former wrestler Dawyne Johnson’s (aka The Rock) second attempt at a leading role following The Scorpion King in 2002. The action/comedy was directed by Michael Mann protégé Peter Berg (Hancock) and co-written by R.J. Stewart (Xena: Warrior Princess) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac). Rounding up the cast are Seann William Scott (American Pie‘s Steve Stifler), Rosario Dawson (Sin City) and Christopher Walken (Hairspray). 

Johnson stars as Beck, a “retrieval expert” on his last job, who’s sent to the Brasilian mining town El Dorado to find his Boss’ son Travis (Scott) and bring him back to the States. Once there however, he runs into trouble with the local “authorities”, headed by evil, greedy mine boss Hatcher (Walken) and has to deal with the annoying Travis, Indian rebels, a treasure hunt and monkeys…don’t forget the monkeys. Trailer and review after the jump.
